. the conservative columnist charles krauthaummer is driving the same thing now. it is still really senator john mccain. over the past week senator john mccain made six different television appearances just to ta talk about the benghazi attack and obama administration cover-up of the attack making his case over and over and over again to any blinking red light within sight about how benghazi should not be viewed as an attack on a u.s. consulate but instead be viewed as a democratic lie. an obama scandal. the senate needs more information about this blatant cover-up, says john mccain. john mccain needs more information. this, for example, is john mccain convening a press conference yesterday morning denouncing the scandal that congress is not being given enough information about this horrible scandal that he can't get any answers on. while john mccain was demanding answers at this press conference, that he convened yesterday morning, some of this colleagues, from a committee that he's a member of, were getting answers. on the subject that he was so mad about. john mccain was missing a three-hour hig
and national affairs editor for new york magazine, emmy darling john heilemann, former pennsylvania governor and current governor of "now," governor ed rendell. msnbc contributor and queen bee of the grio.com joy reid and editor of the new york tiles sunday magazine, mr. sunday morning himself hugo lindhgren. call it the november surprise. in 90 minutes, president obama will hold his first press conference since re-election and he will be holding it amid circumstances no one could have predicted. just one week after america gave him a second term, at a time of high stakes negotiations over the so-called fiscal cliff, the president will likely face questions about a salacious sex scandal involving the now former cia director. >> does the president see this in general as an unwelcomed distraction at a time when he's just -- was re-elected and has a bunch of priorities in terms of the fiscal cliff and in terms of his cabinet? >> well, i certainly i think wouldn't call it welcome. obviously the, as i said to ben, the information about general petraeus came to him as a surprise. >> not exactly we
on papa john's problem with obama care. >>> good to have you with us. thanks for watching. more bad news for republicans this week. their history of obstruction is coming back to haunt them. president obama made it clear friday he will insist on getting rid of the bush tax cuts for the wealthy in a new economic plan. congressional republicans are playing tough in public instead of tax increases on the rich they are pushing nonspecific tax reform. >> it's clear that there are a lot of special interest loopholes. >> we can increase revenue without increasing the tax rates on anybody in this country. we can lower the rates, broaden the base. >> eliminate all these tax credits and tax deductions. you can generate $1 trillion in revenue. you can lower tax rates by doing this. >> eric cantor put the talking points together in a letter to republicans. what would be sbes a fundamental reform of the tax code that lowers rates, broadens the base, makes america's businesses kpet ty again. let's see here now. lowering rates, broadening the base, ending loopholes and e deductions. where have we heard
the roof off that room today. did you see this? >> senator john mccain and senator lindsey graham both said today that they want to have watergate-style laerhearings on attack at the u.s. consulate in benghazi. and that if you nominate susan rice for secretary of state, they will do everything in their power to block her nomination. as senator graham said, he simply doesn't trust ambassador rice after what she said about benghazi. i would like your reaction to that and would those threats deter from making a nomination like that? >> first of all, i'm not going to comment at this point on various nominations that i'll put forward to fill out my cabinet for the succeecond term. those are things that are still being discussed. but let me say specifically about susan rice. she has done exemplary work. she has represented the united states and our interests in the united nations with skill and professionalism and toughness and grace. as i've said before, she made an appearance at the request of the white house in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to
passed already, with those rates and john boehner responded. >> the senate has already passed a law like this. democrats in the house are ready to pass a law like this and i hope republicans in the house come on board, too. we should not hold the middle class hostage while we debate tax cuts for the wealthy. >> i think in stead of the house moving on the senate bill, the senate ought to move on the house bill. >> so the debate has been engaged. it's going to be an interesting conversation on friday to get it started. >> that's right. he'll have the senate leaders and house leaders over to talk about this. one of the things that was so clear from that press conference was that the president is saying let's move this forward, let's move this forward now. he is certainly realizing that when you look at the four years that he has ahead of him, really it about the next 18 months to two years. that's when he has a mandate that, when he has political capital to spend. quickly he also wants to forestall some of these tax hikes that could come as early as january. john boehner initially said, lis
with the kind of entrenched senate air stock ra si. who are they worried about beating them? someone like john mccain isn't that worried. he has been the most vocal voice. and it's hard to see whether those are going to reign him in. the question is do other people who care about their political future and have national aspirations, this they are more likely to likely to walk away from this conspiracy theory. >> we saw harry reid shut down the idea of there being a senate select committee, a mega investigation along the lines of watergate. we also saw resistance to that idea from richard mur, susan collins, joe lieberman, republican speaker of the house john boehner. i felt like that all isolated john mccain a lot. but you know, maybe he stands alone in terms of his influence on foreign policy matters. >> he does. but there's distance emerging between him and where everyone else is. and partly, we should remember this was very -- this was wielded to the election partly because there was this hope and you'd see it all over the conservative blogs. this was the thing that was going to turn around
john mccain and lindsey graham that they would oppose her nomination to be secretary of state based on remarks she made about the benghazi attacks. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador, who had nothing to do with benghazi, and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received, and to besmerch her reputation is outrageous. >> indeed. let's get to our panel julian epstein, lynn sweet, washington bureau sweet for chicago "sun-times" and msnbc political analyst professor michael eric dyson of georgetown university. professor dyson,fy might begin with you, perhaps the most hated moment in that press conference was the president's barely concealed anger that republicans have been attacking ambassador susan rice for the confusion surrounding the benghazi consulate attacks. this, as you know, has been the drum beat from republicans from the right wing media for weeks. do you think the president's response will do anything to silence the drums? >> unfortunately
disastrous day for senator john mccain. >>> and first, it was papa john's. now denny's is serving up a grandstand breakfast on obama care. good to have you with us tonight. the republican party has an identity crisis. african-american and hispanic voters have been told they were bribed by their vote for president obama. this is not a winning message for republicans. now or in the future. mitt romney was the big loser for the republican party and he's now thrown the gop into turmoil as he rides off into the sunset. once again, romney was recorded telling his big donors what he really thinks about americans. >> what the president, president's campaign did was focus on certain members of his base coalition, give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government, and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote. >> extraordinary financial gifts. msnbc can't confirm the authenticity of the recording although we do not know when the call was recorded. romney went on to explain why he believes minority voters chose president obama. >> what the president did is he gave them two,
the commander of u.s. forces in afghanistan, the general john allen who took over the job when general petraeus left it to run the c.i.a. now officials say general allen's nomination to become the supreme allied commander in europe is on "hold" while potentially inappropriate e-mails are being checked out, and her name is jill kelley, a friend of the petraeus family and triggered the original f.b.i. investigation that revealed the director was cheating on his wife. she contacted an at she knew, shirtless agent, claiming to have received anonymous threatening e-mails tells her to stay away from general petraeus. it is unclear but the f.b.i. found reason to open an investigation. investigators determined that the e-mails were from general's biographer paula broad wall and she and general petraeus had an fair and neither had done anything criminal but reason that are inexplicable at this moment, there is more after thousands and thousands of e-mails were discovered thousands and thousands of e-mails. and general allen is also married, and he defies there was an affair and denies that there was any
that is on the table for democrats and republicans and that is the president and speaker of the house, john boehner and how they are going about this discussion as far as the bush tax cuts and america's sort of fiscal future. now, mark, i'm curious to hear your thoughts on this. first play sound from president obama and john boehner yesterday talking about doing the delicate dance of revenue raraisers. >> i'm not going to extend tax cuts for the wealthiest 2%. how you make up the trillion dollars just by closing loopholes and deductions, the math tends not work. >> i've outlined a framework how both parties can work together to avert the fiscal cliff without raising tax rates. ways to put revenue on the table without increasing tax rates. >> mark a baby version of the themes we've talked about before, which is to say you have a hard line part of the republican party then the deal making part of the republican party and the democrats. how do you think this turns out? can john boehner, do you think john boehner can corral or quiet the more radical elements of the republican party to come to the table
a split and one of the interesting ways you can follow it has to do with what -- john boehner versus paul ryan. boehner is pushing for conference shame, republican congresswoman rogers while ryan is pushing tom price who used to run the conservative caucus in the house. if most of the caucus is getting behind them then it's a sign they'll dig in their heels. if they're going with boehner, it's a sign they'll deal. >> i want to bring in a democrat on both the armed services committee and select committee on intelligence and the fiscal cliff if i might. do you think the republicans will come to play? >> i believe that they will. it's my hope that everyone has gotten the message loud and clear that the american people expect us to compromise, democrats and republicans coming together to solve the fiscal cliff issue but in a balanced way and that is certainly what president obama has campaigned on protecting a strong middle class, allowing the tax cuts to expire above $250,000, but we can't be afraid to compromise but we can do that without compromising our principles. >> is part of this deal
in john fury, and former communications director for dennis hastert, and also three-star admiral and former congressman joe sestak. okay. let me start with you, john, when we look at policies that use outreach and outmoded da ta gathering and the people with the candidate that is chosen and ability to reach diverse groups and what is your thought? >> well, some elements of all three. i think that we had a candidate problem. mitt romney was not the best candidate and he did not put the best foot forward. and every major error that happened in the campaign happened because mitt romney stuck his foot in his mouth which is problematic, but as republicans we have a cultural problem. not a philosophical problem, but a cultural problem in the sense that we have to be diverse in the outlook and much more inclusive and less of a country club and more of a broad-based party to appeal to all sectors of the country, and there's room in the country for both a con ser vative party and liberal party, but we have to do a better job of explaining why our conservative values make sense for a bigge
spreads from general petraeus to his replacement general john allen the top commander in afghanistan. his nomination to become the supreme allied commander in nato is side tracked by e-mails with tampa socialite jill kelley. >> this has the elements in some ways of a hollywood movie or a trashy novel but the bottom line, you're talking about families, youpds standing military leaders and the impact it has on the country and overall questions about the fbi. >> the pentagon says it has uncovered 20 to 30,000 potentially inappropriate documents exchanged between general allen and kelley the woman's whose complaints first triggered the investigation that brought down petraeus. what about paula broadwell's role? late monday night with her consent federal agents served broadwell's home for hours, carting out boxes and bags as they are wrapping up their investigation. >> defense secretary leon panetta on route to australia was the first top administration official to comment on the petraeus departure. >> i think he took the right step, and i think it's important when you're director of the cia w

live from senator john mccain and lindsay graham on this show yesterday. >> for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi, and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> and in a moment that felt much more 2008 than 2012, senator john mccain took to the senate floor telling the president that he's responsible for benghazi. the senator doubling down on the "today show" this morning. >> i'm not taking anybody on. we owe it to their families. we owe to its to other americans. for the president of the united states for two weeks to deny that that was the case is a coverup or incompetence. either one of the two. >> joining me now is capitol hill correspondent kelly o'donnell. what are you hearing about the exact focus of the meeting? some are beginning certain briefings yesterday. >> well, thomas, there's an effort here to try to separate out what has been a complicated and troubling society of facts with respect to what happened with general petraeus and leaving the cia. all of
times" john har wood and "washington post" amy gardner. thank you for being here. appreciate that. you heard senator graham essentially accusing the administration of misleading on the nature of the benghazi attack. what's your attack? >> my attack take is that benghazi has become the channel through which republicans remaining unhappiness about the election outcome is being focused. look, it was catastrophic tragedy. but we have an explanation from petraeus for why susan rice said what she said. that is to say they deliberately obscured what they knew in order to avoid giving away too much to our adversaries. now you could say why did you need to do that? i'm not competent to say what advantage was gained there, but i'm not sure in the alternative what advantage anyone thinks the obama administration was going to get by misleading. the event happened. did anyone think the obama administration was trying to preserve some illusion that terrorists never would hit us as long as obama was president? we have been at war with terrorists 11 years and lost thousands of lives. i don't understan
obama rearranges his national security team, it is considering asking senator john kerry to serve on the team and the fbi agent was barred from taking part in the case for allegedly sending shirtless pictures of himself to a woman involved in the case. meanwhile, the ghost writer of broadwell's book, vernon loeb, says he was clueless about the affair between petraeus and broadwell. here with the latest on the scandal that keeps getting bigger and more bizarre, cnn's pentagon correspondent barbara starr and intelligence correspondent, suzanne kelly. welcome back to you both. >> thank you. >> when we talked on friday night, it was all just breaking and it seemed a relatively straightforward scandal but none of us thought it would stay that way, and sure enough, tonight, a really bizarre twist. it's not john kerry possibly becoming defense secretary, nothing bizarre about that at all. what is bizarre is this revelation in the "wall street journal" and it's reported there, we haven't independently corroborated this, that apparently the fbi agent originally detailed to investigate this

of the answers. >> reporter: more recently, president john f. kennedy's affairs were notorious. lyndon johnson was such a man with the ladies that he allegedly had a buzzer installed in his congressional office to alert him when lady byrd johnson was on the way. journalists never reported on such things back in the day, but that eventually changed. so did technology. recently, it's the digital footprint of dalliances that led to spectacular falls. remember congressman anthony weiner, who tweeted a photo of his privates. when the story broke, he denied it, claiming his twitter account had been hacked. eventually he confessed and resigned. >> i apologize first and foremost to my wife and to my family. >> reporter: there was client number nine, aka eliot spitzer, the governor of new york and former cnn anchor. when investigators followed his money, it revealed he spent thousands as a regular client of a call girl. he, too, stepped down. >> i have acted in a way that violates my obligations to my family and that violates my or any sense of right and wrong. >> reporter: and now comes general petrae
for us to move on and find those responsible and bring them to justice. >> john mccain and a few other senators as you know have been very vocal saying this administration was either incompetent or involved in a coverup, those words. what you heard today, does it put that question to rest? >> it really does. and no one who's ever come in from the intelligence community has ever suggested anything along those lines. i asked the general in particular about ambassador rice and he was very clear. the unclassified talking points we were given were their best assessment they could give us without compromising classified information. and her comments track that exactly. we were given that late on saturday. she appeared early on sunday. there is simply no there there and i wish my gop colleagues could move on to focus on what we should be focusing on, which is finding those responsible and bringing them to justice. in a year in which it wouldn't have been a presidential election that's what we would be doing and that's what we should be doing now. >> well, about that affair with paula broadwel
are considering plans to reduce their work force or slash hours for hundreds of employees. papa john's pizza, another company suggesting that course of action as well. both restaurant chains are now coming under fire, being attacked at un-american. lou dobbs, a great american, and host of lou dobbs tonight on fox business channel, joins us now. what do you make of this? people are saying they're retaliating against president obama for being reelected, and that's what this is all about. >> and that's unfortunate, because it is the mark of our times that people are looking at everything in these sort of petty, partisan views. they don't understand that when people tell you that obamacare will cost us billions and billions of dollars and business will be impaired in what it can do because of the onerous costs of obamacare, they mean it. they actually have consequences. you know, the president says elections have consequences. one of them is obamacare, as john boehner put it the other way, it's the law of the land. that means that businesses are going to be laying people off. that means that ove
refused to consider higher tax rates. timing is also a sticking point here. here is john boehner this weekend. >> 2013 should be the year to begin to solve our debt through tax reform and entitlement reform. together we should avert the fiscal cliff in a manner that ensures 2013 finally is that year. >> no accident, by the way, it was boehner who did the republican response to the president this weekend. the president holds the most leverage in the next two months, directly after the election and before tax rates expire. when the threat of a tax increase on the middle class hangs over the negotiations. republicans would like to try out the negotiations to see the political climate is better for them in the next congress. the big question is how much did the white house learn from the failed debt talk to 2011? will the president bypass leader ship and begin to try to deal directly with the republican senators who have sounded the most open to compromise. >> i think there is a deal. the ying and yang of this is we know there have to be revenues. look, i haven't met a wealthy republ
line the president has them over a barrel. >> john, i think they will kick it down the road. an interim deal that simply post bones all of the elements of the fiscal cliff for three months. and gym baker of two admissions pointed that out. >> that's possible. that's the habit in washington is never to take a problem on. however, after an election like this one, the republicans are really in trouble. they know it. they are reeling with the results. the mitt telephone telephone calls to the donors, all this stuff that's going on, has them back on their heels. and i have a feeling they would like to make a deal with the fear that if there is no deal, the media and obama have the upper hand and are going to put all the blame on the republicans like they did in '94 with the government shut down that cost us a lot. and the public wants a deal. they ought to make a deal. the public supports raising tax rates on the rich. get it done and let's move on. >> pat, what about a compromise that looks like this. we around going to raise the marginal raise on high income earners, but we will make them
something about john mccain. i don't know if you're aware of this, but he along with several other republicans did not attend the hearing today, but he's blood pressure very, veocal on issue. a cnn producer skz him, by the way, instead of coming, he was holding a press conference calling for a separate investigation into benghazi, so a cnn producer asked why he didn't go to the hearing and here's what he said -- >> not going to comment on how i spend my time. >> is john mccain being too political? >> well, look, first of all, that was yesterday. and yesterday was a closed session of the intelligence committee. today was the hearing and today was where the director of national intelligence, the head of the counterintelligence agency, the cia, fbi, state department, they were there and john mccain was at that hearing. >> so you feel any criticism of him is unfair. people have been picking on him for this, sounds like you're depending him. >> john said he had a scheduling conflict and i'll take him at his word. >> you were a former ambassador yourself. rand paul was on the show last n
war. senator john mccain suggesting to bring in bill clinton as a peace negotiator and calling him an honest broker to go in to handle it. and now let's go to aymon goldien. >> well, palestinian forces have left today alone 25 people killed. these targets have varied in range and scope. one incident took place on sunday that is drawing strong condemnation from people here and several around the world saying that it may have amounted to a massacre at the house of one leading member of a hamas militant. according to israel, this is a house belonging to a senior official of hamas, but at the same time there were 12 people inside of that house, including four women and four children. all of them killed. so many people are condemning that attack. meanwhile, it is nighttime here and the people of gaza are bracing themselves for what could be another night of deadly attacks despite the diplomatic activity in cairo. negotiations are under way as well as palestinian factions as to what to do next, but those here in gaza say they are preparing for a ground invasion, and meaning if israel lau
